After eons of darkness Dracula has come into the light. He must emerge from his suicidal hole to help mankind fight the bad vampires that prey on humans. The author Piers Anthony (now a vampire) tries to help him claw his way out, at the risk of his own existence. Meanwhile, a timid vampire named Michael falls for Lauren, a courageous vampire sheriff named Lauren. Even though Michael is frightened of her, he can’t help but pursue the red sheriff.
A 12-year-old girl named Jenny has turned out to be a vampire killer, protecting the innocent wherever she can. But as the evil ones take notice of her, she realizes that she might survive to her teen years.
It’s a tale of romance, fangs and valour.
Hello there! This is a bit random but I just thought I'd say hi and that I think it's neat we have so many books in common (I don't find that too often on here!). So I'll follow! I also had fun reading your reviews, and even though you probably know by now, 'The Messenger' by Markus Zusak was set in Australia :) so that's probably why some parts sounded British since we still use a lot of their sayings and such over here XD. Anyways that's enough of me being socially awkward. I just wanted to say hi ^_^
Jennifer, yes, your friend was right about Swan Song. A great end-of-the-world book. Others along that line I like are The Stand and Cell by Stephen King and The Road by Cormac McCarthy. And The Descent by Jeff Long and World War Z by Max Brooks. You have read most of my favorite John Irvings....but you didn't mention Hotel New Hampshire. I am glad you read Ishiguro's, Never Let Me Go, even though it was tough to handle emotionally. It was disturbing yet brilliant. -John
Jennifer- I was really taken with you shelf. Not many people have Faber books on their shelf. And you give Crimson Petal and The White and Under The Skin both your highest rating like I do. You seem to agree that Ishiguro's Never let Me Go is a wonderful but extremely disturbing novel. It is also uncommon to see the fine thriller, Mine, by McCammon on someones list. Two other great thrillers are Angels and Demons by Dan Brown and Intensity by Koontz. You rate Cell by King high too. That is one of his very best in a long time. I am always scared (in a good way) by end of the world books. Swan Song by McCammon worked for me like that. And one I read recently is one of my all time favorites- World War Z by Max Brand. I also share your appreciation for John Irving. Widow for One Year and Hotel New Hampshire are 2 of my favorites by him. I also give Memoirs of a Geisha by Golden my highest rating. I would like to suggest The Time Traveler's Wife by Audrey Niffenegger. if you haven't read it. -John
Hi there! I'm just dropping by to welcome you to The 100+ Book Challenge. The idea of the group is pretty much self explanatory - try to read 100 or more books in a one year period. If you do have any questions, please feel free to send a message to me or Tenia. In the meantime, good luck reaching your goal!
hey, Jenn! Thanks for inviting me to Shelfari. Now that my job seems almost full time, my pleasure reading has diminished greatly, however, this inspires me to get something going before Christmas! See you in a couple of weekends at the Lindsays!! Dana
